Above Ground Podcast #207, In Through the Out Door

Getting paid to help people can be one of the most rewarding career choices you can make. The exchange of energy that occurs during massage is at another level. Brian Kavanaugh helps people heal themselves. Brian is a conduit to allowing people to come in through the out door and our guest on this week’s Above Ground  Podcast. 

What’s up, everyone? Time for episode two hundred seven of Above Ground Podcast. This Sunday, Above Ground Podcast is participating in an open house and health fair starting at 10:00am at the Center of Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy, 14 Computer Drive West, Albany, NY 12205. This incredible opportunity led us to our InnerView this week. 

Brian Kavanaugh is the Director of Admissions for the Center of Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy (CNWSMT) in Albany, NY.  He has been a licensed massage therapist since graduating from CNWSMT in 2005.  Brian started his education after realizing you could make a good living and have a ton of flexibility compared to other vocations. What he didn’t expect was the growth of self that he developed, the sense of purpose gained, and the intuition to guide him. 

Filling your own well is a personal mantra for Brian, and he teaches his students to take better care of themselves in order to serve their clients better. Brian had such a profound experience at CNWSMT that he says, “If I didn’t do another massage ever again. I would still go through the education again.” For him, being part of the community and personal growth were great benefits on top of receiving his LMT and following his soul path. 

If we do not release our traumas, pains, stressors and depressants, we store them in our bodies somewhere.  The physical will bemoan the emotional. Our bodies do tell the score, and if you do not release these items, we will become symptomatic. Whatever that means to you. Brian evangelizes the benefits of massage for everyone. He especially touts it for those with depression. Massage being a healing touch, Brian has touched so many folks—cue comedic drum fill. 

Please come out this Sunday to the Center of Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy at 14 Computer Drive West, Albany, NY 12205, from 10a-2pm for their open house and health fair. This event will have a little bit of everything, from bodywork, energy work, sound therapy and Above Ground Podcast. Come out to help us spread self-love via self-care. Set an intention to come and open yourself to something new. 

Speaking of intentions. When we fired up the engine on this pod, I set the intention of having seven episodes in the can and that it would be a weekly episode drop. I had no idea it would go two hundred-plus weeks and counting. Next week we celebrate four years of stomping stigma and having real, raw conversations about mental health from the peer-spective. Remember, hope won’t spread itself! Thank you!

Also summer is fast approaching and AGP will be out and about. We will definitely see you at the one and only, Nipperfest 2023. Nippertown’s summer party in the Electric City is on Saturday, July 22, 2023. Music Haven at Central Park in Schenectady will be rocking from noon on. Come join the entire Nippertown family, stop by our table, and let’s talk about what happened to you. 

I cannot say thank you enough to everyone who listens. If you are feeling emotionally distressed, please seek help. #URL0V3D . If you are in a crisis please call or text 988 or go to your nearest emergency room immediately. Until next week get well,  be safe, stay ABOVE!
